The Arty family of Digilent FPGA/SoC boards was designed with versatility and flexibility in mind. With universally popular Arduino™ headers and multiple Pmod™ ports, an Arty will be the most adaptable FPGA/SoC board in your toolbox.

The Arty Z7 is a ready-to-use development platform designed around the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 System-on-a-chip (SoC) family. The Zynq®-7000 SoC family integrates the software programmability of an ARM®-based processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, enabling key analytics and hardware acceleration while integrating CPU, DSP, ASSP, and mixed signal functionality on a single device.

The Arty Z7 is supported by Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite, including the free WebPACK version. The SDSoC™ Development Environment provides a familiar embedded C/C++/OpenCL application development experience for heterogeneous Zynq® SoC deployment.

There are two variants of the Arty Z7: The Arty Z7-10 features the XC7Z010-1CLG400C, and the Arty Z7-20 features the larger XC7Z020-1CLG400C. There is a third option available, the Arty-Z7-20 with a Xilinx SDSoC voucher, which is recommended for those interested in video processing applications.
